New SSHG - Let's Have a Conversation!

In June 2013, the Ontario Ministry of Education released the New Revised Social Studies, History and Geography. Teachers across the province will receive their copies in September. However, September 2014 will be mandatory implementation. This will allow time for teachers to explore and learn about the tools and strategies to help achieve the vision of this program.


"The social studies, history, geography, and Canadian and World studies programs will enable students to become responsible, active citizens within the diverse communities to which they belong. As, well as becoming critically thoughtful and informed citizens who value an inclusive society, students will have the skills they need to solve problems and communicate ideas and decisions about significant developments, events, and issues." Ontario's New Revised Social Studies, History and Geography - Ministry of Education

What does this vision statement mean to you? Stay tuned as we continue this conversation!
